May I suggest an alternative to speed cameras ["Speed cams get to work," News, July 27]? Place speed bumps in the road to slow traffic. These would be cost-efficient and serve the purpose.

Also, intersections with cameras should all be equipped with digital counters to display the number of seconds before the light is going to change. This would give drivers adequate warning, so they don't have to speed up or slam on their brakes.
